Prior to this trip, I had minimal exposure to Unibroue. My first experience drinking their beer was years back. I grabbed a bottle of La Fin du Monde at a hole-in-the-wall pub in Pittsburgh simply because the label appealed to me and their unflushed taps seemed unappetizing. The second, snagging a bottle of À Tout le Monde just to tickle my mid-90’s Megadeth affinity with zero intent to consume. The bottle’s sole purpose was to sit on my shelf, more a piece of art or homage.
As February 14 inches closer, so does the countdown to finding the perfect gift for the special man in your life.
Whether you’re gifting for a husband or boyfriend, crafting up a masculine gift in a swarm of red and pink plush bears can be seemingly daunting.
To start, let me confess that I hail from The 'Burgh. While my beloved Steelers botched their season and won’t be going for a super 7th ring, I still bleed black and gold (after all, there’s always hockey.) The rest of our office is divided with a handful of Tampa Bay Buc buffs, some Jacksonville Jaguars fanatics, and of course, a few elated Pats fans sprinkled in. They are the ones walking around with sh!! eating grins (I’m lookin’ at you, Marvin.)
Winter seasonal beers are an annual tradition anticipated by beer enthusiasts and casual sippers a like. Each year, brewers set out to make their own winter warmer with seasonal spices and personal flares. This year, we are counting down to Christmas with these 12 festive beers. From robust dark ales to crisp IPAs, there is a holiday brew for every pallet.
‘Twas the night before guests arrived, when all through the house, not a creature was silent, not even the spouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney in a hurry, in hope that they could pull it together with haste, not fury.
There is more to life than pumpkin spice, believe it or not (but we’re not haters, honest! Check out our homage to the PSL here). Since we’re about a month into fall, it’s time to consider richer flavors, with warming spices, creamy textures and decadent nuances. That doesn’t mean clear spirits like vodka and moonshine are off the table – it just means you’ll need to infuse them with a little autumn.
Let us be Frank[enstein]. Halloween is less than two weeks away and we are alive with excitement. We have the party planned, costumes picked and 10 beers that are completely brew-tacular. These delicious blends of fall flavors and spooky aromas are ideal for a night of ghoulish shenanigans.
Before you freak out that there are only 11 more weeks before Christmas (cue ensuing panic in 3… 2… 1..) let’s not forget we have one mighty fun holiday approaching even quicker. We are talkin’ about Halloween, y’all. Break out the candy corn and BOO-ze because it’s time to throw a scary-good soirée.
The perfect meal -- an open-faced pie using tomato sauce, cheese, and any manner of meat toppings. In addition to the standard, medium-thick-crust pizza, there are two major American varieties: New York style (also called thin crust) and Chicago style, also called 'deep-dish' or (more accurately) 'stuffed' pizza.
